If you're willing to allow a little less steady growth, but a very low chance of actually loss, a ST bond fund is a option. - DeltaOne81

IMHO, there is virtual certainty of a small loss over the next six months in a bond fund. The Fed will have one and possibly two more rate increases, then we'll see. For the next six months <at least> I am strictly CD's and MM for the fixed income portion of my asset allocation.
